MEET OUR CONFERENCE SPEAKERS!

We're excited to announce the first round of speakers for our 2022 conference, Electri-fiction to Electrification: Overcoming Barriers.

The conference will kick off with opening remarks by Rit Aggarwala, NYC Chief Climate Officer and Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection, who will provide context to the day’s discussions.

After Rit, a dynamic group of panelists will address the remaining barriers holding us back from wide-scale building electrification. They'll preview the future of energy codes, discuss the challenges of electrifying, and examine lessons from multifamily buildings that have installed heat pump water heaters.


See the list of speakers, and we'll see you on June 15! And thank you to our Lead Sponsor, Carrier.
